The Good News:-

even if you already have copies of these shows, it will be nice to have enhanced versions in pretty packaging (hopefully better than the Road Trips cardboard sleeves).

The Bad News:-

Probably means that the full show comprising the Bonus Disc (5th December 1977) will never see the light of day.

But, heh, isn't it better than 30 years ago when (other than the Warner Brothers/Arista official releases), all we could get were shitty, hissy, scratchy (as in The Simpsons) vinyl bootlegs that deteriorated every time they got played?

Think yourselves lucky.

More '93 anybody?

Agreed that its a good thing that these shows are being released in their entirety. I think these comprehensive boxed sets are the best products that Rhino/GDP produce, however I cant help being dissapointed with another selection from 1977 so soon after the Hartford release. At least its not some unlistenable dogshit show from 1984...

Some big 80s thing was my one fear when I read that interview, but what he said about his own preferences in the rest of the interview made that sound unlikely.

I agree that it's weird to have this release come on the heels of the (also excellent, IMO) Hartford release. You'd think they would have waited on that one if they had this one in the works, or maybe they're trying to provide different levels of 1977 engagement for different budgets.

BTW, my next hope after this run was the June 70 Fillmore West run. There've been no 1970 releases since the two download series single CD releases. Maybe we'll see that in the next Road Trip.

Something tells me the rest of it will end up being used by David Gans on Sirius or the 2010 KPFA Marathon. Thats what happened more than once before in this kind of situation...

PS Hopefully the next 'next' release is the DVD/CD 'Bickershaw Festival' set (incorrectly?) forecast by Newcastle-Upon-Tyne's Spin CDs last month .......

Hope so ..........

Go to Lossless Legs, download them (U-Torrent, Trader's Little Helper, Nero, etc.,) burn them to CD-R (take a back-up, just in case) and enjoy the ride (play them on your ghetto-blaster or in the car).

In 84 or so, I bought a JVC DC-7 (the middle one). It had a linear-tracking turntable in the bottom so you could take your long-playing records along with your 33 pound stereo. Damn thing cost almost $500.

Of course, cd's came out a year or so later and my father got a kick ass boombox for his garage. Was there last weekend, and the box still booms 25 years later.
